Kimball Multi-Sport Center


    The Rundown

    The Kimball High School in Kimball, Minnesota, had a growing, immediate need to expand their industrial arts program classroom. The industrial arts program teaches students real-world skills and introduces kids to welding and woodworking. The school also needed more gym space for wrestling practice, conditioning for the track and football teams, and community education classes. After examining options for adding space, the school and community agreed on a plan to add a multi-sport fabric structure onto the existing gymnasium, which would allow the industrial arts area to expand into existing space.

    They met all our safety requirements and did an excellent job.

    Legacy’s crew was extremely professional. They met all our safety requirements and did an excellent job. They even provided an extensive final completion checklist with pictures of each item. That was very impressive, and it really demonstrated the level of workmanship they expected of themselves.

    The extended life span of a Legacy building over competitors was also a main factor.

    The finished interior was a key factor in ultimately choosing Legacy, as well as the simplicity of the solution and the relocatability. The extended life span of a Legacy building over competitors was also a main factor in choosing Legacy.

    Working with Legacy was great.

    Cost was the initial factor for selecting Legacy, but once we saw the engineering that goes into their design, we understood that could make it easy for us to expand the building in later phases. We also liked its compatibility with conventional construction. There are a lot of possibilities we could explore in the future. The guys who constructed the building worked under some really, really tough conditions, but they wrapped it up on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, and the building opened Christmas morning. Everyone was very responsive, and it was a pleasure to work with them. Once visitors got into the building and we experienced the interior environment with the heat flow and the insulation, we were very satisfied.
